Polka dots: A trend so timeless, we cannot get enough!

Polka dots are like a fashion boomerang; they always come back around. Often associated with '50s rockabilly and cultural icons like Rosie the Riveter and Minnie Mouse, the print is favoured for its vintage vibes and whimsical look. This is the one trend that truly never goes out of style. Whether they’re adorning a dress, top, or bag, the playful print is as timeless as it gets. Indeed, most seasons you’ll find this darling dotty pattern at some point or another. We’ve seen them popping up and sported by trendsetters all over the globe, making them the perfect way to incorporate a print in your closet. So, in order for you to rock this ever enduring print, we have compiled six looks, runway to red carpet to reality inspiration!

Go bright!

Don’t shy away from going a little bold and bright with your polka dots this season. Black polka dots on a bright, sunny yellow will definitely add that oomph factor to this cute and casual trend.

Polka dotted flounce

A flowy and flouncy maxi dress in polka dots is yet another trendy way to pull this off. Flowy polka dot dresses are everywhere; you're bound to find a fit that is perfect for you.

Who said you can't wear black and brown together?

For years, we thought one can simply not wear black and brown together. We thought they clashed and it was a fashion NO, NO! Well, not exactly the case. Once considered a fashion faux pas, the colour combo work wonders when worn dottily (no literal context applied).


Nail the polka dot trend in one go with this polka dot puff sleeves jumpsuit in white! Featuring a figure-flattering wrap front design, this polka dot jumpsuit is the must-have new season piece, so snap it up now.

The classic white on black

For a subtle look, opt for black and white. The classic and chic spotty trend induces an instant cutesy vibe but if you want to flaunt this look to a formal event, take inspiration from this white on black V-neck dress for a more mature take on the trend.

Mix the prints

Go spotty this season in a pair of black and white polka dot pants. You can either keep things simple on your top half or even style the top with a printed, multi-coloured blouse. Combine a polka dotted print with another print, floral or geometrical, the end result is a playful look for you to flaunt.
